Rose-Hulman has a biochemistry laboratory (FL-110),

equipped with a chromatography refrigerator, smaller refrigerators, and a large shaking incubator for growing bacteria,

with other, smaller, instruments for working with DNA and proteins,

and with a Sorvall centrifuge, located in the laboratory space next door.
